    not smooth as in where it doesn't skip, smooth enough to where it is playable. It just took 10 minutes to load a level. I think it had 19MB of RAM on it.

    well like travis said, thats why people eat up the consoles, because the gpu and the cpu are devoted to 1 thing at a time, no HD (except for xbox) you could never get a computer to run a game perfect.....well....there is always alienware
    guns dont kill people, abortion clinics kill people.

    alienware makes excellent everything... the cases are designed for the specific purpose to keep everything inside cool, the motherboards they use are good, the graphics cards are always the best, and they specially make every computer, (small company <100 employees) then after they have all the best hardware, they tweak it for the best possible performance, but then again, is it worth 2100???.........::snicker:: yeah!

    they also have some hardware that normally you can't buy. You could buy a Alienware computer with a Radeon 9700 b4 you could buy the Radeon 9700.

    ?? That seems a bit odd? Probably won't make much difference
